Galaxy A02 32 GB for mobility?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
The Galaxy A02 32 GB belongs to those phones that can slip in anywhere.Its 6.5-inch screen is a good compromise.
It’s enough to watch movies or write text messages.This product is finally very accomplished and seems solid a priori.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.And therefore several operators on this model.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
We found out that this Galaxy A02 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
For the battery, this phone includes one of the most powerful with 5000 mAH and therefore a better autonomy.One load a day is more than enough.
On the question of loading, Samsung has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.A handy device for watching videos.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.An 6.5-inch screen with overly vivid colors.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1600.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
For the audio part, Samsung wanted to do well.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The right choice to play online?
Games are performance consuming.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This model has 32 GB, which is low.And because Samsung predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Games involve intense use of the battery.On this model, there is little to worry about: it is on the best side of autonomy.Its power is 5000 mAh; that’s enough to play for hours.Add to this a quality design and aesthetics that will make this smartphone a beautiful object.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 6.5 inches.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
For audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Generally speaking, Samsung has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The photo resolution of this Galaxy A02 32 GB is 13 Mp, which gives a nice picture.In fact, it’s enough to make some nice pictures or a few holiday movies.You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.The editing function is out of date.This Galaxy A02 32 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This device contains only 32 GB of storage space; less than most.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
Finally, the Galaxy A02 32 GB…
Following our tests, we see that this Galaxy A02 32 GB is not good for all cases.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
